Corn meal after fungicide treatment?

I've read in the archives that corn meal may not work well on fungus if a fungicide has been used before. I used Clearys in the fall and the brown patch is back with a vengeance. Is that long enough for the fungicide to be gone to get the corn meal in there?

Thanks.

Also, what about cracked corn? I can get that locally as well as a corn/soybean meal mix. Would that work as well?

Thanks.

The effects of last fall's fungicide should have worn off by now. Cracked corn will work but the smaller the particles, the faster the microbes can work on it.

David,

Thanks. I put some out this week. Is it activated by rain at all?

Yes, corn meal needs to be moist for the microbes to digest it.
